Sub-Saharan Rhythm attempts to capture the spirit and emotion of the music of the sub-Saharan countries of Africa by incorporating three folk songs that are indigenous to this region: "Maiwe," "wateh eh" and a "Liberation Song" which I acquired from a documentary film on Mbira and African music. The piece requires some "extras" from some of the wind players in the form of clapping and singing.
